Genitsari at Town Hall
Greece

The Carnival of Naousa is an old Greek traditional event and attracts many visitors.  Men wearing traditional uniforms, dance across the streets of this beautiful Macedonian small town.  The Carnival of Naousa is traditional and called Genitsaroi and Boules, a custom that derives from the ottoman occupation era.

After the gathering of the group finishes, they all head to the Town Hall, called the House of Mountiris in the years of the Turkish occupation and they figure they would arrive there at around noon. They gather at the Town Hall at almost twelve o’clock. All the citizens of Naoussa are gathered there, too. Everybody waits to see Genitsari.

Right after finishing dancing in front of the Town Hall, Boules start moving in a slow dance called Patinada accompanied with the song ‘Os Pote Palikaria’ towards the first neighbourhood, where they will stop to dance for the crossroad of Lamnias (triodi of Lamnias).


Genitsari hail all the people they know by shaking his/her hand and by hopping three times on their feet. When they reach the place where three streets meet, the clarinet players play the Patinada of Sanidas.

After that they pass through the narrow lane of Christides, the present market place, and they come out at the Burnt Houses (Kammena) dancing the Patinada of Chontrosougla’s. They also stop to dance at the Burnt Houses.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
